Spencer Lewis Johnstone (17), seaman, and Carl Wennersten (29), labourer, who between them stole £67/10/- worth of Allied Works Council goods, the property of the Commonwealth of Australia, were convicted before Mr. C. R. Noyes, S.M., in the Cairns Police Court yesterday. Both pleaded guilty when charged. Johnstone on two counts and Wennersten on one. On the first charge, that on April 28 he stole two Astor wireless sets, two tins of paint, one tent, eight coils of fuse wire, one mosquito net and one blanket, valued altogether at £45/10/-. Johnstone was ordered to enter in his recognisance of £20 to be of good behaviour for six months. For the second offence, on April 29, with which he was charged that, conjointly with Wennersten, he stole one Astor wireless set, one forge blower and one blanket, valued at £22. Mr. Noyes ordered that he enter into his own bond of £20 to come before the Court for sentence if called upon within the next six months.
Wennersten was released on his own recognisance of £20 to be of good behaviour for sir months.
Prosecuting, Senior-Sergeant T. J. Quinn said that the articles mentioned in the first charge against Johnstone were stolen from the warehouse in the council yards on April 28, and were not recovered until May 2. On that date, Plain-clothes Constables T. S. Lewis and J. P. Thomas questioned Johnstone, who said that he had been with four other lads in the council yards when they decided to take the material, which they hid near Dunn- street. Later, after the constables had questioned five other persons, Johnstone and Wennersten admitted that they were responsible for the theft of the balance of the property. All the items in the charges were recovered in good order, said Senior-Sergeant Quinn. Wennersten told the Magistrate in Court that the open warehouse without any guards had presented a big temptation. Mr. Noyes said he was lenient in allotting the sentences, as these were the first offences recorded against Johnstone and Wennersten.
